It was a moment of great excitement for kids and adults alike when Giftland on Friday evening launched its first universal playpark in Guyana.In addition to the Kids Playpen, two popular attractions are the rock climbing wall and the bungee jumping playpen for adults.Before the ribbon cutting, Director of Giftland, Roy Beepat, proclaimed the event as historic: “This is really quite a momentous affair, in its simplicity, this really represents the few areas in Guyana, where you can come as a family and enjoy with your younger ones. One of the things about the Mall is actually to create this family element so that you can come as families and enjoy all the different facets of what we are trying to establish.”The rock climbing wall is yet to be opened and according to Beepat, this will be completed in the next few weeks and is to be one of the highlights of the playpark.He noted that tremendous hard work went into the creation and setting up of the playpark and stressed that safety at the facility is of paramount importance.The playpark is a first not only in Guyana but the Caribbean. It is estimated to have cost $50M.
